Subject: help: "& the lion is the king of all"?
i recently saw Alasdair Roberts live - it was the first time i'd seen him or heard his music & he did 5 traditional songs with a supernatural leaning. i've figured out (i think) what 4 of the 5 are (Lord Gregory, Fair Margaret & Sweet William, Lowlands & The Wife of Usher's Well), but (typically) the one that i can't get (what i remember of it) out of my head is still unknown to me & i wondered if anyone here could help.

having only heard the song once i am struggling to remember the lyrics, but part of the chorus had the line "& the lion is the king of all"

in case people here aren't familiar with him here are some links to reviews of his first album of traditional songs (i've looked them up too, in case one was the one i'm looking for)

& there's a session from a French radio station here:

thanks in advance to anyone who can help..
